Why is Mark Teixeira ahead of Miguel Cabrera in the All Star Voting for AL 1st basemen?
because it's called the "ALL STAR"" game. not all stat games, when are you people going to use what brain you do have and realize that...... it's for the stars not unknows who are playing over their heads....
Is there position eligibility coming for Miguel Cabrera?
If you click on "Players" and then look along the top for "Position Eligibility" you can see how his (or anyones) eligibility is coming along.
So far Cabrera has played no outfield, but did start one game at first base.
Batters need either 5 Games Started or 10 Games Played at a position to gain eligibility. Pitchers need 3 Starts to gain SP eligibility, 5 Relief Appearances to gain RP eligibility. Each number displayed is a count-down, so for instance, "5" means "five games remaining to gain eligibility."
I get rid of Josh Beckett and i get Miguel Cabrera. Should I accept this trade?
No question pull the trigger on that deal. Mark my words Cabrera is going to go off, he's overdue for a breakout. I can see the signs of it already, Detroit has a healthy lineup and they've plugged a couple of weaknesses in the batting order. Beckett is tough to lose but you can afford it with Webb and Lee having great seasons.
Is Miguel Cabrera worth takeing in the first 5 picks of my fantasy baseball draft?
Well that actually depends on who the first 4 picks of the draft were.
If it was
Yes it was a bad move to pass on Miggy. The ability for Wright to get SB's and his higher average makes him more of a bigger attraction to fantasy baseball players, and I would rather have him over Miggy.
If Wright went instead of Pujols, I think it was a good move. Even though Pujols has the chances to put up huge numbers, any injury that has been talked about for this long has to be something to be concerned about. Miggy has a chance to mimic the numbers of Pujols except for probably the avg.
Anyway, Miguel Cabrera was a good pick at 5. Maybe just a bit over-valued, but none the less was a good pick. If David Wright was there, I would have went with him first, but if not, its a good pick.
Who will the Angels get now that Miguel Cabrera has been traded to Detroit?
its really hard to say, off the bat id say tejada, cause the angels have proffessed an interest in him before, but tony reagins was quoted as saying some possibilites have come up that were totally out of left field (pardon the pun) and who knows what those could be, he sure wont say
i kind of doubt we'll go after johan, but who knows, rolen is a possibility, garret atkins, never rule out troy glaus either
His first name is actually Jose, Miguel goes by his middle name...His wife'e name is Rosangel and so is his daughter's...
Miguel Cabrera is the youngest player in Major League history to have back to back 30 homerun seasons...
The kid is an offensive machine, one of the best in baseball...Reminds me of Manny Ramirez >"without the attitude"
BA-339 OB%-430 SLG-574 OPS-1004
But the thing that has impressed me, is that for the good of the team he moved from right field to third base and has made himself a pretty good defensive player....His .957FLD% and RF of 2.56, 33 doubleplays and 16 errors, these numbers are average for a ML third baseman, but considering the fact he's only 23 and new to the position>on a full time basis...Pretty impressive...
On the autographs, one of the best ways to get them is to go to spring training...The players, especially the star players are much less pressed for time in camp...You can actually talk with the players...It's nice if you know something about them, like the fact his daughter's name is Rosangle, "she's probable a cutie"! All daddys are proud of their kids...
